Multi-faceted alt-pop talent Vesperteen has experienced rapid widespread success throughout his career with no signs of slowing down. The Columbus, Ohio native birthed this project in 2015 and has continued to evolve and connect with his passionate fanbase. With his fans being known to camp out and line up hours in advance, Vesperteen has sold out venues throughout the US and Europe. Vesperteen has also supported for acts like Twenty One Pilots, Switchfoot and Great Good Fine Ok.

After the success of his debut self-titled EP and follow up The Hype is Dead in 2018, Vesperteen recently signed to Grammy-winning producer Alex Da Kid's KIDinaKORNER, which boasts a diverse roster of talented artists, producers, and songwriters. His latest EP Sad Sun includes a cohesive collection of tracks that reflect the theme of coexistence. Working with Detroit-based producer NYDGE the songs wrestle with finding a sense of balance between emotions and the ways in which humans process experiences whether negative or positive.

As a strong advocate for the importance of nurturing mental health, Vesperteen believes in the power of music as a salve, showcasing vulnerability, embracing humor, and transcending anxiety together. His open support for the LGBTQIA community has created a safe space for fans. This collective energy of devotion is exemplified through fan tattoos of lyrics and logos, incredible fan-art, and friendships made all over the globe. As of 2019, he's collected over 4.5 million streams on Spotify and over 70,000 fans across social media platforms and growing.

#2 on list of Artists To Watch In 2018   "His anthemic rock and soaring, catchy choruses will give you Bleachers and the 1975 vibes. Oh, and his live shows? Expect a high-energy experience where you’ll witness Rigsby perform an entire set behind his drum set  standing up ."

"Vesperteen & His “Vesperteam” Are An Unstoppable Force"   "Some joke that there is no such thing as a 'casual Vesperteen fan,' which after seeing his live show at the Roxy last month, is definitely an understatement. The crowd’s reaction is comparable to the moment someone like Matt Healy from the 1975 takes the stage in an arena–except Colin works the stage as both a resident rockstar and a killer-standing-drummer, making a connection with each fan in every room as he converts casual fans into die-hard ones."

LadyGunn investigates the hidden song campaign for 'It Will Never Be Enough" and interviews fans from around the world who got to hear the song early.   "“So I burned some CD’s with the song and made unique artwork for each city — Columbus, Los Angeles, Chicago, NYC, and London. It was so cool to see people hustling around town to try and get these first. And it was a sweet way to feel the excitement over a brand new song.”
